Jervis McEntee Diaries
Saturday September 21, 1889
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 21, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Saturday, Sept 21, 1889 The wind came out of the N. W. this morning and there have been fine skies all day and rich effects, but we have had a couple of slight showers. It seems like October and heavier clothes and fires are comfortable. I went down town. There was a letter from Eastman saying his sitter had come and he had had two satisfactory sittings. I came home and have been busy all day packing things for our trip. I packed what lines and [?] I had and then my blankets, pillow, shawl, Ulster Etc. Now I have the tents to pack which I will leave until next week. I have worked pretty hard and am tired. Went down to John McEntees but he was not at home.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
